Celine Dion’s album Courage is coming soon!

Celine Dion has announced a new album, titled Courage, which will tackle the loss of her husband, Rene Angelil, and how she finds the strength to keep going.

“Courage was representing the whole losing my husband, losing my manager, my kids losing their father and to find the strength to keep going because I wanted to,” she told.

Angelil, who also served as Dion’s manager, died in January 2016 at the age of 73. The couple had been married since 1994.

Courage, set for release on November 15, will be Dion’s first English-language album in six years. The singer released three new songs from the project, including “Laying Down,” “Imperfections” and the title track.


Lord of the Rings series will be filmed in New Zealand

Amazon Studios announced that it will film its upcoming The Lord of the Rings series in New Zealand.

“As we searched for the location in which we could bring to life the primordial beauty of the second age of Middle-Earth, we knew we needed to find somewhere majestic, with pristine coasts, forests, and mountains, that also is a home to world-class sets, studios, and highly skilled and experienced craftspeople and other staff. And we’re happy that we are now able to officially confirm New Zealand as our home for our series based on stories from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings,” show-runners and executive producers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay said in a joint statement.

The show will explore new stories that take place before Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring, the first instalment in the Lord of the Rings book series.


Liam Payne shares new single

British singer Liam Payne is back with new music. The 26-year-old artist released “Stack It Up,” a new song featuring American rapper A Boogie with da Hoodie.

Payne shared a clip of the single on Twitter and celebrated the song’s release in the caption.

“It’s finally here! #StackItUp ft. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie @Artist HBTL is available now everywhere,” he wrote. “It feels good to share new music with you again.”

“Stack It Up” is Payne’s first new single since “Polaroid” with Jonas Blue and Lennon Stella, which debuted in October 2018. Payne discussed writing “Stack It Up” lyrics with Ed Sheeran.

“We changed a couple of things about the song because the song, in a sense, is kind of one-dimensional in a way, in that it’s about making money,” Payne said.

Payne came to fame with the boy band One Direction, which has been on an indefinite hiatus since 2015.
